Hey all,

Just interested to see what you guys think of the 0+3 policy now. My work has already pencilled in trips to Hong Kong for meetings in November (seems it's a good middle ground to meet with nearby suppliers in Shenzhen). Will business travel return to Hong Kong?
Leisure is iffy at the moment for me. 3 days wasted really as you can't go anywhere to eat.

What concerns me is what happens if you test positive on one of the mandatory PCR tests you have to do after arriving? Do they send you to a quarantine centre or can you quarantine in a hotel? How long do you have to quarantine for (I’m guessing longer than the 5 days in Australia)? I personally won’t be travelling to Hong Kong until they relax all the testing requirements and remove the 3 day ban on restaurants and bars.

It all looks confusing, and not a business friendly decision. Mainland government does not seem to care if expats leave. Their main focus is to get this piece of land back in the mainstream way of life.

Quarantine for 7 days in either a hotel or the quarantine centre. Work said they would comp the hotel stay if they need to. Travel basically only feasible if its for longer than a week, we are doing 3 weeks Hong Kong and then 6 weeks in Australia.

I wouldn't take the risk. Let your suppliers take that risk of issues? That's what your paying them for.

Meet somewhere else nearby like Manilla, Taiwan, Vietnam?? Not sure if Vietnam or Philippines are opened up yet, but I assume that is the case. Only read that Taiwan has opened up out of those.

Even though HK had opened up again. My wife's work colleague went back to HK last week and got out into quarantine on arrival. What a waste of time.
